Storm Surge and Tide
A three dimensional hydrodynamics model (DELFT3D) of the Swansea bay area has been set up to investigate the sediment transport dynamics within Swansea Bay and longer term hydrodynamics of bedform features in the area. This project will underpin improved environmental understanding and coastal management in the Swansea Bay region. This study will improve understanding of the local morphodynamics which will reduce future consenting burden. Its model outputs (and derivatives) will be useful for assessing tidal lagoon impact as well as many aspects of local shoreline management.
